to go south? >> that's right. happy new years, america. we appear poised to dive off the fiscal cliff starting with a round of finger pointing today. this is classic gridlocked washington. why america is fed up with the lawmakers and all about pointing fingers, gaining the upper hand here. and also, gaming this out because if we do dive off the cliff an we don't get a deal in the next couple of days, which looks increasingly like where we're headed then we come back in january and have to negotiate again and a political advantage for both sides if that's the case. >> her's the thing. even if a deal does get done at this point, it's a small deal. much smaller deal than both sides said they wanted several months ago. the debt ceiling, will be back in two months. there's a good chance we are going to be revisiting a budget issue in march, as well. is this the new d.c. zachary? >> well, it's kind of an old d.c. and the current version, you know, 4.0. and you're absolutely right. it's convenient because there's a news hook for the fiscal cliff for january 1st and calling this now b.c. befo
. this is the age of taking action. viagra. talk to your doctor. >> from america's news headquarters, i'm elizabeth pran. south carolina senator jim demint resigning resigning from, a key force behind the tea party movement. accepting a job from the heritage foundation. the republicans had criticized house speaker john boehner's cliff offer, saying it wouldn't be good for job creation. but senator demint says it has nothing to do with his decision to quit. >> new concerns about the deadly meningitis outbreak, plaguing the country. dozens of people who received tainted steroid shots have infections at the site of the injection site, which could lead to fungal meningitis. the nationwide outbreak has been linked to shots made in the massachusetts necc, which has killed 36 people and sickened more than 550 others. now back to "on the record." avee under high stress. >>> hundreds storming the michigan state capital and hours ago they voted to approve right to work legislation. governor rick snyder saying the measure is not anti-union, it's pro worker. joining us is rick cline, and mr. mccormack andn yor
positive rating on the republican party were folks that live in rural america and folks that live in the south and even that want great, 39-38, 39-33. >> yeah. >> i mean, is it even worse than it looks? or is this a -- is this a kick the loser right after an election? >> i think you got to have perspective. the perspective here is that look at 2008, in december 2008, the parties numbers were actually even a touch worse than that and then two years later, november 2010, the republicans pick up 62 seats in the house and six seats in the senate. american politics are fluid and right now it's a bad fluid, bad mojo for the republican party. that's what happens after a loss like this, there's some introspection and there's a lot of media attention on where the republican party is. >> fred, before you jump in, i want to throw up more on the republican side of the aisle. we tested paul rivian, mitt romney, john boehner and the republican party as a whole. paul ryan comes out with the best ratings. among just republicans earlier he's through the roof. but he comes out the best here. what w

as the on poll i go. >> reporter: the gangnam style song is poking fund of south korea's gangnam district, hence the equine themes. but little subtlety about a song in 2004, lashing out at america's involvement in the iraqi war and their presence in south korea. psy was covering another band song with lyrics translating to violent retaliation against american forces accused of wartime torture and abuse. he has since apologized profusely. speaking of the limits of the language of self-expression and saying he was deeply sorry for how those lyrics that could be interpreted. some say that doesn't jibe with taping at national building museum. in this heady highly political sized times in washington, nothing can be done without a political angle. inside the production team rehearsed. outside in the spirit of the holidays, a public less concerned with controversy, real or perceived. >> it would be tough. i mean, especially to the people. >> reporter: and even a bit of advice for the south korean pop star. >> i would say keep it to the music and stay out of the whole political stuff, you know. >> repor
of america hears the great things about south carolina. [applause] >> thank you, tim. to our conservative rock star for the state of south carolina and our conservative rock star for the country and the heritage foundation, center jim -- senator jim demint. >> governor, when you say there will never be anyone like me, most of washington says, thank goodness. [laughter] i am excited about what is going on today. one of the few things i am worried about what i was considering leaving the senate was who would replace me. i knew that governor haley would put someone in this seat that we would be proud of and continue to stand for those principles of freedom and opportunity. governor, thank you for your faithfulness to our cause and your good judgment. tim, i could not be happier today. i can walk away from the senate and knowing that someone is better than i am that will carry the voice of conservatism to the whole country in a way that i could not do. i will keep working with that cause, but you inspired me since i heard you speak in public. our country needs those positive and optimistic v
, recalibration is under way. listen to south carolina senator and tea party leader jim demint. >> one of the mistakes i think the republican party made the last two years is trying to make obama the issue without sharing with america bold reform ideas that get people inspired to get behind us. gwen: demints surprise solution? to get out of the senate and set up shop at the conservative heritage foundation. is this about just jim demint, or something larger, amy? >> we can probably see a little bit of both. you're right, jim demint is the de facto leader of the tea party, but the tea party really isn't a movie -- movement either. it's a leaderless sort of entity. he's been a thorn in the side for leadership and for the establishment republicans for quite some time. whenever boehner is the control for what he see is has compromise or caving, he stands up. he's been involved in a lot of interparty fights. most successfully, marco rubio. he beat charlie crist in a primary and one of his biggest failures is christine o'donnell. he's not afraid to get into the mix and we -- he didn't want t

. we have a great group who truly understands we are here to represent the great state of south carolina and the citizens of america, and i thank them all for their friendship. finally, i'd like to thank all of my colleagues here in the house. we may not always agree on things, but we are here for a reason, to try and make this nation better. as i prepare to move to the united states senate, it is that belief that makes me incredibly optimistic about our future. the battles of today will in the future be seen as a positive turning point for our nation where we got our fiscal house back in order and revitalized the american dream for our children and our grandchildren. i look forward to continuing to serve the res. dents -- residents of south carolina, some of the most passionate people in our nation, and i will never forget my time here in the people's house where we worked every single day to build a brighter future for our nation. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to clause 12-a of rule 1, the chair declares the house in recess until 10:00 a.m. you and also on our w
to build a new airport south of the metropolitan area of chicago. >> airports are the one thing we do in america that people get when it comes to the partnerships. there's always criticism of this, criticism that the governments don't have money, there are criticisms that governments don't make the rht decisions. the city of chicago famously struggled with its public/private partnership on its parking meters in 2008. the city leased its system to a group of private investigators. they did a poor job of managing the transition. there were steep rate hikes and confusion and it resulted in the downgrade of the city's credit rating. i know that's not one of your projects. >> no, that's right. >> what are the lessons of that type of thing for your own initiatives? >> you got to be very careful. you know, the city also did one with the skyway, a bridge across from chicago to indiana. that was done in a better fashion. if it's not carefully done, it can really backfire. so that's why we take each step and do it in a very reasonable sound way. we're embarking on this. this is brand new for ou
